Abstract: Sound source localization is one of key techniques in audio signal processing, while achieving indoor localization is known to be challenging due to its high computational complexity. In this paper, a localization algorithm based on sparse Bayesian framework is proposed to solve the problem of localization in reverberate environments. The algorithm achieves localization by dividing the detected area into grids and constructing a parametric dictionary with parameters being unknown reflective ratios of the enclosure. After that, methods of variational Bayesian Inference are used to approximate to the actual value of unknown parameters. The proposed algorithm has advantages that it proposes a multi-parameter model with parameters being reflective ratios of walls, which is critical, but generally unknown in actual localization. Besides, parametric tuning steps are replaced by statistical methods to improve efficiency and accuracy. During the numerical simulation, the algorithm is proved to have the property of rapidity and accuracy.
